Dr. Jodie Kliman, core faculty of the PsyD program in Clinical Psychology, was awarded a sabbatical semester for spring, 2012. She will use her sabbatical to begin a several year outcome study on the effectiveness of the Artsbridge Institute. Artsbridge brings Palestinian and Israeli adolescents to Boston College for intensive summer training in art techniques, leadership skills, and a form of reflective dialogue that helps them to understand and empathize with each other's experiences as members of two ethnic communities embroiled in violent multigenerational conflict with each other. Artsbridge graduates then return to their home communities, where their work in dialogue, leadership, and art continues year-round with Artsbridge's partner sites, NGO's in Israel and the West Bank, in person and online. In addition, these young people serve as youth mentors to younger children. This outcome research will involve both culturally appropriate quantitative measures and interviews with the youth before, during, and after their Artsbridge training, as well as interviews of staff and of Artsbridge parents. The research will be carried out in close collaboration with Israeli and Palestinian psychologists, art therapists, expressive therapists, family therapists, and conflict resolution workers. One Boston-based Palestinian expressive therapist to collaborate in this research is MSPP's own Yousef Alajarma, Ph.D., who is on the faculty of the Master's Program in Counseling and Forensic Psychology, and is Jodie's colleague on the planning committee for MSPP's future Master's and CAGS Program in Global Mental Health.
